25+ Things to do on Spring Break!

Spring Break Badger Sports Park

Spring Break is here (or just around the corner)! We’ve got loads of ideas for you if you’re looking to stick close to home or to stay on a budget and a deal from Badger Sports Park!

Staycation

Head out to one of these Perfect for Spring Parks. Spring park adventurer pro tip: Bathrooms are open at Fritsch and Fritse Parks in Fox Crossings/Menasha.

Hit a trail! Here is a list of 10 Family Friendly Trails.

Visit a nature center! We’ve got loads of options: Heckrodt, Bubolz, Mosquito Hill, Bay Beach Wildlife Center, Green Bay Botanical Gardens, and 1000 Islands are all located in our area and offer amazing opportunities to explore indoors and out!

Check out spring break specials for Badger Sports Park and Funset Boulevard!

Check out one of our indoor swimming options or indoor playgrounds if the weather is junky.

Take the kids out to eat for FREE (or cheap!).

Seasonal ice cream shops are opening up, pick up a cone or a sundae on the way home from an adventure. Ice cream is (somewhat selfishly) my favorite incentive for rounding up kids when it is time to leave somewhere fun. Find lots of options here.

Find a Spring Theater Performance.

Visit one of our local museums: The Building for Kids, Paper Discovery Center, Weis Earth Science Museum and Barlow Planetarium, Oshkosh Public Museum, EAA Airventure Museum, National Railroad Museum, Neville Public Museum, History Museum at the Castle, Trout Museum of Art, Children’s Museum of Fond du Lac, Green Bay Children’s Museum

See some animals at the NEW Zoo in Green Bay!

Check out our calendar and find a storytime or movie or craft or activity at a local library.

Find some treasures at an Easter Egg Hunt and visit the Easter Bunny!

Wrap up Lent by heading out to a Go Valley Kids readers’ favorite fish fry: Best Fish Fry Near & Around Northeast Wisconsin

Day Trips & Overnights

Madison

Samantha Gehl has some excellent ideas for an off-the-beaten-path trip to Madison. If you have a reciprocal membership for the Building for Kids, Barlow Planetarium, Paper Discovery Center, the National Railroad Museum, etc. you can use it at the super cool Madison Children’s Museum. 

Milwaukee

If you have that membership mentioned above, you can take it to the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, and Discovery World which is super close by to the children’s museum. You can use it at the Milwaukee Public Museum also! Find more ideas about things to do in Milwaukee here: Milwaukee Day Trip.

Minneapolis

Mall of America and beyond tips for your trip to Minnesota here.

Sheboygan

There’s a children’s museum in Sheboygan where you can use that reciprocal membership also! Above and Beyond Children’s Museum is just one of the super fun options for family adventures tucked away in Sheboygan. This might be a great place to head if your family prefers to avoid crowds. Find out from a Sheboygan native about the fun to find there here: Sheboygan Family Day Trip.

Wisconsin Dells

There are obviously loads of water parks in Wisconsin Dells to check out but here are some ideas for dry land while you’re there: Wisconsin Dells Guide.

Before you head out, here are some practical tips from some of our sponsors:
